The Property

The apartment occupies the top floor of a wonderful barn conversion in a magnificent setting. Nestled in the glorious Cumbrian countryside of the South-Western Lakes, the location is a huge draw for interested parties looking for a rural escape.

The substantial barn has been converted with great attention to detail to create three apartments that are perfect for modern requirements. As the building is a typical Cumbrian “bank barn”, the apartment is accessed privately via only a single flight staircase. The top floor position ensures spectacular views across the surrounding landscape. The apartment is laid out for open plan living and has been finished with simple, elegant décor that adds to the relaxing atmosphere, along with wood-effect luxury vinyl tile flooring to reduce noise. There is a spacious sitting room/dining room with a Juliette balcony affording excellent views of the Duddon Estuary and the Irish Sea. The kitchen is fitted with an induction hob, combination microwave oven and cooker hood. There are two bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and the second with an en-suite shower room. The bathrooms have beautiful contemporary suites.

The apartment has access to parking.

Local Information

The property is well-positioned for exploring this beautiful area. The driveway to the properties continues as a footpath into the Whicham Valley towards the 600-metre high Black Combe. The adjacent Millom Park is perfect for woodland walks and the secluded beaches at Haverigg and Silecroft are within a few minutes’ drive, as is the Hodbarrow RSPB reserve and the historic market town of Broughton-in-Furness, with its Georgian market square.

Nearby, there are pretty drives to the Duddon Valley that inspired Wordsworth to write 34 sonnets, Corney Fell and Coniston Water. To the north, the coast road takes you to the coastal section of the Lake District National Park, Muncaster Castle, “La’al Ratty” steam railway, the former Roman port of Ravenglass, and picturesque Eskdale and Wasdale (home to Scafell Pike). Heading east, you’ll find the market town of Ulverston, the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, the Medieval village of Cartmel and, from Lakeside, boat cruises on Windermere.

For schooling there is both primary and secondary schooling available in Millom, along with a nursery. There are train links from Millom just a short drive from High Lowscales, with local trains to Lancaster, and onward to all national centres.
